"The following chronological synopsis of flora accounts of Microstegium is perhaps instructive: not treated by Small (1933), 'local' (Fernald 1950), 'rarely introduced and possibly not established' (Gleason & Cronquist 1952), 'sporadically naturalized' (Godfrey & Wooten 1979), 'a rapidly spreading pernicious invader on moist ground, too common' (Wofford 1989)... This species has become a very serious pest, now ranking as one of the most destructive introduced plants in our area, forming extensive and dense patches, sprawling over and eliminating nearly all other herbaceous plants. Eradication is very difficult, and considering its obvious colonizing abilities, only temporary." — Alan Weakley, Weakley's Flora
